hidden complexities and new horizons

Randall, by listening to - and, therefore, thinking about - the electronic music you've posted, I've developed a new appreciation for the artistic effort required to construct (I wanted to say "play", but these works seem more like sound-building projects - and I don't intend that pejoratively) and execute these pieces.

For instance, after a couple passes at "Picture", I began to focus on that clever bridge from :30 to 1:15, which connects the intro and the diminishing metronomic pulse that follows. I love how it begins with a subtle acceleration of the baseline beat (this is just an attempt at a personal description of what I hear, as I have no technical vocabulary for this)...I can't recall any of your posts on the main boards; I'd love to know whether you find a common ground b/w this music and the Dead or if you like the latter for entirely independent reasons (or a bit of both!)./tua amica,k

music of the moment & mp3 player

Although I have no mp3 player or ipod or even a cellphone, I do have a CD player in my car. Today I was listening to the end of the Richmond Mosque show from 1977, Dave's Pick #1. Oh, and Dave, in case you see this, fantastic job on the series, I got a subscription and am real glad I did. Great choices so far; you even released the very first show I saw. That was very cool. So, just, Thanks a lot Dave! Also, I like the seaside chats you use to introduce these sets. But anyway, listening to "The Wheel," and I'm wondering: HAS the thunder ever gotten anyone? If so, please tell the story.

at the Shade Gap Bluegrass Festival (Pa.) 8/08/69 Beautiful three and four part harmonies.

A great BWV 488 is by Murray Perahia. Really articulate and warm-toned - hits the spot.

@katky111 re: Goldberg Variations

Check out András Schiff:

Tureck (quite different and quite slower):

The Gould '81 remains inspiring to me and I'll likely get it. I already own the Schiff, some of the Tureck (among a couple others: Simone Dinnerstein, Vladimir Feltsman) on tape or cd.
